Shelf life study
The Food Pilot has high-level expertise and a complete infrastructure to answer all of the industry’s questions about shelf-life.
- Using the Food Pilot production lines, new ingredients, recipes or processes can be evaluated on a semi-industrial scale.
- Packaging food under modified atmosphere can also be studied at the Food Pilot.
- After packaging, the microbiological, (bio)chemical, physical, and sensory quality is studied in the laboratories described above.
- Finally, the Food Pilot has a large collection of isolates of pathogenic or spoilage organisms which can be used in challenge tests where microorganisms are deliberately inoculated into the food products.
